Justin Theroux was not caught flirting with his “The Leftovers” co-star Margaret Qualley at a party that Jennifer Aniston didn’t attend, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this rumor. We’re told it “never happened.”

A so-called “eyewitness” tells In Touch that Theroux and his 19-year-old co-star Qualley, who happens to play his daughter on the HBO series, were “very flirtatious” at a network awards reception. “Margaret was dancing and shimmying next to him,” the supposed insider claims, adding that Theroux was “definitely feeding into it.”

The purported “partygoer” goes on to allege in the tabloid that “Justin was having a great time without Jen,” while the magazine quotes a separate “insider” as saying Aniston is “miserable” in the marriage. None of this is true, and it’s becoming difficult for Gossip Cop to keep track of all the false In Touch stories we’ve busted about the newly married couple.

Recently, however, Gossip Cop corrected the magazine when it published a tale about Aniston demanding Theroux shoot “The Leftovers” in California, so she can keep an eye on him. Just before that, we busted the tabloid’s ridiculous report that alleged Aniston had adopted a six-month-old baby girl. The list goes on, and it’s exhausting.

Gossip Cop spoke with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us that no “flirting” is going on between Theroux and his young co-star. We’re told Theroux and Qualley’s relationship is purely professional, and the so-called “flirtatious” party encounter simply “never happened.”
